Alcatel recently announced the OneTouch Hero, the company's flagship smartphone for the rest of the year. The Hero, which runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, boasts a 6-inch full HD display and a 13-megapixel camera. The device is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and a 3,400mAh battery. It also includes a 2-megapixel user-facing camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0LE, and either 8 or 16GB of storage. In addition to the device, Alcatel revealed several novel accessories for the OneTouch Hero, including an e-ink cover and an LED cover. The e-ink cover adds a second display that can be used instead of the phone itself for reading and saving battery life. The MagicFlip LED cover has lights embedded in the surface that act as notifications for incoming messages, calls, as well as status updates. The Alcatel OneTouch Hero is sold with a stylus and supports wireless charging. Alcatel did not say if the OneTouch Hero will be sold in the U.S.
